Mystery competition pulls Old Peculier fans into crime

01 June, 2007

Theakstons Old Peculier is giving whodunnit fans the chance to solve a mystery in an online competition as part of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

The beer sponsors the Crime Novel of the Year Award, the only literary prize of its kind to be voted for by the general public, and which has a longlist including such big names as PD James and Ruth Rendell as well as aspiring writers.

Crime author Natasha Cooper teamed up with Theakstons to create the whodunnit competition, which fans can solve online at www.harrogate-festival.org.uk/crime, www.theakstons.co.uk or www.waterstones.com.Amateur sleuths are invited to e-mail their suspect at the end of the tale and the winner will get a full weekend package to the Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate and a personal tour of Theakstons brewery in Masham by executive director Simon Theakston.
